The Promise, The Movie Inspired Envelope Calligraphy Addressing

The Promise, The Movie starring Oscar Issac, Charlotte Le Bon, Christian Bale and Angela Sarafyan showcases a love triangle much like Romeo & Juliet’s according to actor Marwan Kenzari in an interview at the Toronto Film Festival. The love story takes place as the historic drama unfolds in the Ottoman Empire as the Armenians start being deported from their villages and homes. There are two love stories according to Sarafyan, who plays Maral, stated in a Charlie Rose Interview on 4/20/17. There is the love story of Maral & Michael who are betrothed and then get married and there is the love story of Michael and Ana, an Armenian Parisian whom Michael meets in Constantinople when he lives there to study medicine. Our Envelope Addressing Calligraphy is inspired by the married love of Micheal & Maral although it could also be between Ana & Michael or even between Christian Bale’s character, Chris & Ana.

The Promise Michael & Maral Boghossian Watertown, Massachusetts

The above calligraphy is printed in Madina Script in black ink using Hyegraph Calligraphy. The names read Mr. & Mrs. Michael & Maral Boghossian and the Address reads Watertown, Ma. where Michael ended up living with his only surviving relative Yeva in the Movie the Promise. Although neither Ana nor Maral made it safely to Watertown, the calligraphy above is in memory of their betrothed and tragic love story.

Wall Street Journal Article about Kirk Kerkorian’s The Promise:

The Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal May 1st, 2017 Business & Finance Section

WSJ Article Published 5/1/2017 about Kerkorian’s The Promise:

WSJ 5/1/17 Chris & Ana “The Promise deals with a topic close to the late Kirk Kerkorian’s heart.”

The above article published in the WSJ, written by Erich Schwartzel, discusses Kerkorian, an Armenain/American Mogul, and his love for creating the Movie The Promise released by Survival Pictures. The movie is also a movement #keepthepromise. The article points out that the movie is not a financial success lacking the ROI, however, as Mr. Esrailian, one of the movie’s producers points out, it was never meant to make money. The movie was meant to educate people about the Armenian Genocide. In fact, the proceeds from the movie are 100% donated to charitable organizations to help educate about the topic of genocide. Not only the Armenian Genocide but all Genocide. One such action is the UCLA’s  Promise Institute created partly by the proceeds from the Promise.

The Movie The Promise is in theaters now. To see more on keeping the promise please see our Keeping The Promise Blog. To see more Armenian Inspired Invitations & Designs please see our Armenian Invitations Category or our Pinterest Page.

Wedding Table Name Cards are a great way to accent your wedding/event venue with your wedding/event theme and colors. The Wedding Event Table Card below was custom made with Hyegraph Calligraphy using two layer gold and cream stock. The calligraphy is printed using gold and black inks. It is a double sided, fold over card. This table name card can be inserted into a table card holder so that it is lifted higher off the table, making it easier for guests to spot their table. The table name card below was created for “Classic Party Rentals” and for “Tango And Foxtrot” Flowers.

I love working with my clients in the San Francisco Bay area. Hyegraph also works with clients in San Jose, Oakland, Napa, Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills, Washington D.C., Seattle, Miami, FL and nationwide.

Spring Stationery from Crane & Co. at Hyegraph

First day of Spring in San Francisco started with some Spring showers at Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy. Spring showers mean pretty cards & stationery from Crane & Co. It’s always fun writing a little note or receiving one in the mail. My teenage daughter and her cousins started to correspond regularly by mail from San Francisco to Boston. At first neither one were even aware of purchasing stamps and the correct envelopes nor each other’s addresses. After the first notes they got the hang of it. Now, we get little notes with heart stickers on the envelopes, fun pictures with drawings inside.

No matter what year we’re in, communication via mail has a special place. This is the only way to actually send physical objects and not mere images. Soon, my daughter and niece will be taking the plane to visit. They are making plans and have to-do lists, places to visit and fun activities to share.

Although this young generation of teens face-time daily, they’ve found that sending each other notes with words of inspirations via mail adds an anticipation and physical reminder of their relationship and care for each other. I am sure when they do get together their time will be marked by postcards and scrapbook archiving the time spent together.

Here are some fun notes from Crane & Co. you can pick up this Spring and all year round at our little store at the Embarcadero Center location.

Example One: Letterpress Plum Blossom Note Card

Letterpress Plum Blossom Note Card from Crane & CO. $19.00 per box ~

The above fuchsia letterpress plum blossom note card from Crane & Co. is just perfect for correspondence. It’s vibrant colors and texture are great to write, send and receive.

Example Two: Letterpress Sunflower Note Card


Letterpress Sunflower Note Card from Crane & Co. $19.00 per box ~

The above bright yellow, letterpress sunflower note card from Crane & Co. was a hit on facebook and instagram when we posted it. It’s festive, fun and inspiring for writing a note to a friend or colleague.

Example Three: Great Horned Owl Note Card

Great Horned Owl Note Card $19.00 per box

Great Horned Owl Note Card from Crane & Co. $19.00 per box ~

The above Great Horned Owl Note Card from Crane & CO. is another favorite, teenagers love it and it’s a trend can be found almost on anything including, pajamas, purses, back packs, candles, bookends, etc. It’s another fun motif and inspirational to write a quick fun note for someone close and dear.

All the above cards from Crane & CO. along with many other styles can be found at Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy in San Francisco. Check out our site for more stationery ideas, see our blog and join us on facebook.
